...Hisanori Takahashi joked after taking part in the Giants' Championship parade on Sunday, "Did I make a mistake declaring free agency?" after he heard fans wishing him luck.
...And just some minor Hideki Matsui news... Seems most media outlets in Japan are guessing the Angels or White Sox for the Matsui (with the Angels at the top). I also caught the tail end of a Bobby Valentine interview regarding Matsui where he said that he couldn't see Matsui going to a team in the NL. If memory serves, he picked the Angels as favorites to land Matsui.
